    Bubba Grills smoker / custom controller

    I bought a Bubba Grills reverse flow offset smoker a few months ago. I had Lonnie add a custom exhaust to the top of the firebox [surely he thinks I'm crazy]. I built a custom raspberry pi PID controller for it that controls a tractor flap on top of that exhaust. There are no fans, no choking...

    Poor Man Smoker Controller

    I just bought my smoker, have a few cooks on it, and don't have the control I want. The smoker cost about $250 and I am trying to not turn it into a $750 smoker. I want to do a mod to give me better temperature control. I have looked at this post PID Controller, and for my network it would...

    Lava Lock ATC-1 Controller

    Hey all, Just got a Lava Lock ATC-1 Controller for my Weber Smokey Mountain 18". Couldn't be happier. So far it's working great and I got the whole thing installed and setup in the time it took to fire up a chimney. One question, it's not water proof and here in the Midwest it can rain...

    Hi All, I have a Traeger Pro 34 and have way too many temp fluctuations and occasional flame outs when cooking at 180F. I am strongly considering getting a new PID controller to avoid the temp fluctuations and allow for auto relight if necessary, but can't decide which would be best. Hoping...

    Auber WS-1510H-W first impressions

    Today I finished an overnight smoke on 20 lbs of bone in pork shoulders, first run with the Auber. Overall I like it, with a couple caveats so far. 1. I cannot get the alarm feature on the app to work. The controller sounds, but the app gives zero notification. Hopefully that can be fixed short...

    PID for MES 40 - what is one that will work and not real expensive

    Got to put a PIS controller on my old MES. Need a referral for something that will go to 350 or more and be able to handle 1200 watts / 10-15 amps at 120 volt. Will also need it to come with the sensor. Any body out there point me in the right direction. I am an electrician so not worried about...

    MES40 Mods - The Saga!

    Hi Smokers! Been a long while. I have some free time now, so I put together a PDF of mods I've done to my Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 40 Model 20070311. Maybe it'll help someone? It includes removing the internal smoke box (if using the Masterbuilt external smoke generator), flipping the burner...
